Deadline: 20 February 2017

In the rural sanitation sector, there has been a shift over the past couple of decades towards demand-led approaches in the rural sanitation sector. Community-led approaches (CLTS) have predominated, but other approaches like sanitation marketing or smart subsidies have gained momentum more recently. However, there are still several common problems, such as insufficient recognition of their limitations or understanding of their relative performance. Approaches have sometimes rigid definitions and sometimes blurred ones, which stifles innovation, learning and opportunities to combine and tailor approaches to the changing contexts in which they operate. The cost of facilitating and delivering these approaches is often not well understood or estimated.

To address this, Plan International USA, WaterAid and UNICEF are starting a joint programme to review and consolidate existing evidence and experience on these issues, with an aim to develop guidance documents for rural sanitation programme policy-makers, planners and implementers.

The joint programme has three tasks:

1) Review and analysis of rural sanitation approaches.
2) Development of a (rural sanitation) costings guidance.
3) Development of a (rural sanitation) approaches guidance.

At this stage, we are requesting proposals on the three tasks (<3,500 words) or on individual tasks (<2,000 words) by 20 February 2017.

NRW reduction competition - Dreampipe II - by: Froeydis http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/95-calls-for-proposals-tenders-applications-expressions-of-interest-projects-and-awards/20305-nrw-reduction-competition-dreampipe-ii#20305 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/95-calls-for-proposals-tenders-applications-expressions-of-interest-projects-and-awards/20305-nrw-reduction-competition-dreampipe-ii#20305
Dreampipe II has a total prize purse of about GBP 1,000,000.

The competition should appeal to water utilities, consultants, entrepreneurs, financiers, and NGOs.

Dreampipe II, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), consists of three Phases:

—Phase 1 (up to ten prizes of £30,000 each) requires only the preparation of a business plan.

—Phase 2 will involve implementing a demonstration project to reduce NRW in a selected water utility in a developing country.

—Phase 3 will be based on a fully structured deal for an expansion project in the same utility company.

The main objective of Dreampipe II is to find ways to bring financing from non-traditional sources (e.g. not from international financial institutions (IFIs), bilateral development agencies or governments). We know that financing is available, and the top-priority NRW-reduction interventions can pay for themselves in 3–7 years. The potential is there, but it’s not being realized. We need innovators who can help unlock the potential!

Please consider submitting an entry. Or you may know someone who is interested? We urge you to pass this information along so we can work together to combat NRW.

The deadline for registration for Phase 1 is 15 February 2017. You must submit your application by 15 March 2017.

Please see the attached flyer.

Liebe sustainable sanitation-Kollegen,

Könnten eventuell SUSANA und GIZ u.a. Quellen wie die BMGF, da noch einige Schippen Drauflegen (wenn auch nur mit einem kleinen Schippchen rein symbolisch), um diesen bundesweiten Wettbewerb und dem Thema mehr Gewicht & Reputation zu geben?
www.umweltaktion.de/pics/medien/1_147262...werb_Abwasser_21.pdf
Auch wenn SUSANA und GIZ oder auch die BMGF sich innerhalb der BRD nicht "Einmischen" wollen.

Es wurden bisher nur unangemessene 2TEURO ausgelobt!
Zur Anerkennung wird ein Preisgeld von insgesamt 2.000 € vergeben.
Für Destruktives, wie z.B. neue Gewehre und Panzer steht bundesweit weit mehr bereit...

Das vergangene Thüringer TLUG-Projekt als positives Beispiel passt m.E. sehr gut in diesen Wettbewerb rein (Als praktisches Beispiel zu langjährigen guten Erfahrungen mit der Flexibilisierung bestehender Entwässerungssysteme nach Bedarf, Reduzierung des Feststofftransportes über das Kanalnetz von den Endsträngen her, Nutzung vorhandener oder Bau neuer Absetzgruben zum Feststoffrückhalt, „Simplified Sewage System“, Schlammabfuhr nach Bedarf).

Umweltministerium und U.A.N. starten bundesweiten Wettbewerb „Abwasser 21"

Beschreibung: www.niedersachsen.de/public/images/1x1_trans.gif


Pressemitteilung 186/2016


Der Niedersächsische Minister für Umwelt, Energie und Klimaschutz Stefan Wenzel hat heute (Donnerstag) den Wettbewerb „Abwasser 21 - Wettbewerb für innovative Abwasserbeseitigungskonzepte" eröffnet. Träger des Wettbewerbs ist die Kommunale Umwelt-AktioN U.A.N. mit finanzieller Unterstützung der Landesregierung.
„Die Modernisierung der Abwasserbehandlung im ländlichen Raum kann ein wichtiger Beitrag für mehr und besseren Ressourcen- und Gewässerschutz sein. Im Mittelpunkt des Wettbewerbs stehen dabei technische und organisatorische Lösungen, die helfen, Ressourcen zu schonen und flexibel auf zukünftige Herausforderungen reagieren zu können", sagte Umweltminister Stefan Wenzel in Hannover.
„Wir wollen, dass die abwasserbeseitigungspflichtigen Kommunen durch den Wettbewerb frühzeitig mit dieser aktuellen Thematik konfrontiert werden und somit über innovative zukunftsfähige Alternativen zur derzeitigen Abwasserbeseitigung nachdenken. Innovative Organisationsstrukturen sowie neuartige Sanitärsysteme (NASS) könnten beispielsweise die etablierten Strukturen und Verfahren ergänzen", so Dr. Marco Trips, Sprecher der Kommunalen Umwelt-AktioN U.A.N.
Die sich verändernden Randbedingungen im ländlichen Raum durch Bevölkerungsrückgang, Klimawandel, Anforderungen des Gewässerschutzes und Umgang mit Ressourcenknappheit stellen die Siedlungswasserwirtschaft in der Zukunft vor anspruchsvolle technische und wirtschaftliche Herausforderungen. Doch sie können auch Impulsgeber und Motor für innovative Lösungen der Abwasserbeseitigung sein.
Ein Beispiel für neue Organisationskonzepte ist der zentrale Betrieb dezentraler Anlagen, der eine neue und flexible Option für die Umsetzung der Abwasserbeseitigung im ländlichen Raum in Gebieten mit abnehmenden Bevölkerungszahlen und hohem Sanierungsbedarf des Kanalnetzes in der Zukunft darstellen könnte.
Am 11. Mai 2017 werden die besten Wettbewerbsbeiträge im Rahmen einer öffentlichen Fachveranstaltung vom niedersächsischen Umweltminister Stefan Wenzel ausgezeichnet. Zudem haben die Preisträger dann die Möglichkeit, ihren Beitrag Kommunen, Vertretern aus Wissenschaft und Forschung, Ingenieurbüros und Hochschulen zu präsentieren. Eine im Anschluss an die Fachveranstaltung erstellte Internetplattform fasst die Beiträge zusammen und wird somit Kommunen und Firmen als Ideen- und Kontaktbörse dienen.
Auch die Kommunalen Spitzenverbände Niedersachsens, die DWA-Nord und das Norddeutsche Wasserzentrum e. V. als Kooperationspartner des Wettbewerbs werden dazu beitragen, die Siegerbeiträge zu verbreiten.

Die Teilnahmeunterlagen können ab sofort bei der Kommunalen Umwelt-AktioN U.A.N. als Geschäftsstelle des Wettbewerbs unter der E-Mail-Adresse This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it oder telefonisch unter der 0511/30285-63 angefordert werden. Teilnahmeschluss ist der 31. Januar 2017.

USAID's scheme DIV (Development Innovations Ventures) is still accepting proposals from the WASH sector - by: muench http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/95-calls-for-proposals-tenders-applications-expressions-of-interest-projects-and-awards/17370-usaids-scheme-div-development-innovations-ventures-is-still-accepting-proposals-from-the-wash-sector#17370 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/95-calls-for-proposals-tenders-applications-expressions-of-interest-projects-and-awards/17370-usaids-scheme-div-development-innovations-ventures-is-still-accepting-proposals-from-the-wash-sector#17370
Funding is still available. We accept applications every single day of the year, and happy to receive more application from the WASH sector.


So I thought I should bring this to everyone's attention.

This page explains how to apply:
www.usaid.gov/div/apply/how-to

And this page shows current and past projects that were funded under this DIV scheme:
www.usaid.gov/div/portfolio



ABOUT DIV (www.usaid.gov/div/about)

Development Innovation Ventures
DIV holds a year-round grant competition for innovative ideas, pilots and tests them using cutting-edge analytical methods, and scales solutions that demonstrate widespread impact and cost-effectiveness.

DIV’s tiered-funding model, inspired by the venture capital experience, invests comparatively small amounts in relatively unproven concepts, and continues to support only those that prove they work. Visit the DIV portfolio to see the evidence-gathering and scale-up activities of DIV winners around around the world.



It's a 17 Million USD scheme and DIV still has a WASH funding window to this date. Back in 2011, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation contributed 8.7 Million USD to this grant scheme in a collaboration agreement between USAID and the BMGF (see here: see here: www.gatesfoundation.org/How-We-Work/Quic...s/2011/06/OPP1029829).
The purpose of the collaboration was to support a collaboration with USAID to support the identification, testing, and sustained uptake of evidence-based approaches to delivering water, sanitation and hygiene services to the poor.

Over the next few weeks, starting today, I am also going to introduce and highlight on the forum some of the projects that they have funded, so that we can discuss them a bit further and learn from them.

Here are the links to those that have been introduced on the forum so far:
